Photoderma claimed that they got hair reduction with their product. So I guess our only hope is Photoderma and Applisonix.

why when the news was posted a few posts back.

all your post mentions is that they were able to make progress in testing their products(no set backs) and now have a financial backing so they can continue on.

however the results for the hair removal product itself shows that it is useless at improving hair reduction over the current IPL method. in other words it failed.

My apologies for missing where you got your information. It doesn't help when you take things out of context...like you did.

Read below...Two evaluations were completed. A pretreament test which showed a statistically significant improvement in the uptake of the uptake of SL017. The second evaluation used no pre-treatment. This is the portion that you cherry picked.

" Skin Pretreatment and Follicular Uptake

Thirty healthy subjects were enrolled to evaluate the efficacy of five
different skin preparation techniques to enhance the follicular localization
of SL017. One of the five skin pretreatments demonstrated a statistically
significant improvement in both the intensity of follicular uptake of SL017
and the depth of penetration of SL017 in the hair follicle compared to the
other skin pretreatments.


Light Dose Escalation

Forty subjects with dark colored hair and 10 subjects with light colored
hair were enrolled to evaluate the safety and efficacy of combining SL017 with
increasing doses of Intense Pulse Light (IPL) ranging from 4.5J/cm(2) to
20.0J/cm(2). No skin pretreatment technique was used. No unexpected side
effects were observed at any of the light doses tested. A hair count was taken
at days 0 and 42 in each population. There was no statistically significant
improvement in hair count reduction observed in the subjects treated with
SL017 PDT compared to IPL treatment alone at any of the IPL doses or in either
of the two hair populations studied. However, 25% of the dark colored hair
population, or 10 subjects, that were non-responsive to IPL treatment
demonstrated a statistically significant reduction in hair count when treated
with SL017 PDT."

Corporate Update

Quest PharmaTech announced that it has taken steps to repatriate
worldwide rights to SonoLight Technology for dermatology applications from
Paramount Biosciences.
On April 30, 2007, the Company entered into an agreement with Paramount
Biosciences to develop and commercialize SonoLight Technology for dermatology
applications. Under the terms of the agreement, the Company received U.S.
$300,000 as a licensing fee. The Company has been advised that Paramount
Biosciences subsequently assigned the license agreement to North Park
Aesthetics.
The Company believes that the licensee failed to abide by certain terms
of the Agreement, including its obligation in respect of the commercialization
of the SonoLight Technology; and hence, Quest has terminated the license
agreement.
"The termination of this agreement provides Quest with the opportunity to
actively engage in new partnering discussions with companies who share our
vision to develop best-in-class products based on our photodynamic therapy
platform," stated Dr. Madi R. Madiyalakan, Chief Executive Officer of Quest.
Additionally, Quest announced it will hold its upcoming Annual General
and Special Meeting of shareholders (the "AGM") on January 15, 2009. In
connection with the AGM, Dr. Bin Huang will be stepping down as a director of
Quest effective January 15, 2009. Quest's management and board of directors
wish to thank Dr. Huang for her dedication and commitment to the Company
during the past several years. As well, Quest has nominated Mr. Lorne Meikle
to the Board of Directors.
Mr. Meikle is currently the President and Chief Executive Officer of LOB
Ordeins Inc., the former President & CEO of BCY LifeSciences Inc. (TSX-V:BCY)
and a member of the Executive Committee for The Biotechnology Initiative
(TBI). He was a member of the senior management groups at Glaxo Canada, Smith
Kline French, Ortho-McNeil, and directed the International marketing program
at Connaught Laboratories, now Sanofi Pasteur.
In recent years he was President of TBI; Vice President, Immunovaccine
Technologies Inc.; President and Chief Executive Officer of Seragen
Biopharmaceuticals Ltd.; the Canadian affiliate of Seragen Inc., now part of
Ligand, Inc.; CEO of GeneSense Technologies Inc., now part of Lorus
Therapeutics; and chaired the steering committee for BIO 2002 in Toronto.
Additionally, he was the President, Chief Executive Officer, Founder and a
director of BioCatalyst Yorkton Inc., a venture management company that
specialized in the formation of and management of early-stage healthcare
companies.
